Ihor Nasalyk stresses potential benefits of increased energy exports
Ukraine may begin to export electricity to Belarus in June if a corresponding decision is supported by the government, according to Ukrainian Energy and Coal Industry Minister Ihor Nasalyk.
"If the act, which I have proposed, is supported, Ukraine will start exporting electricity to Belarus and Moldova on June 1," the Minister said.
Nasalyk reminded three years ago Ukraine received USD 750 mln for electricity exports.
In January-April 2016, Ukraine increased the amounts of exported electricity by 20.2% in comparison with 2015. In April, Ukraine exported total USD 10.1 mln worth of electricity to Hungary, USD 4.8 mln to Poland, and USD 75,000 to Moldova.
